I have an Ergo and love it! My son is 14 months old and we still use it! I like it because it can go on the front, side or back. My son is 25 pounds and I hae never had a sore back from carrying him in it. He seems to just snuggle in. It is so easy to adjust that my husband and I can just pass it back and forth. When he is on the front I feel like he can still look out and when he is on my side its as if I'm carrying him in my arms, just with extra support. I know several moms who also have an Ergo and have not heard a complaint. Good luck and hope you find something you love!
